  • A local principal was presented this week with the Terrel H. Bell Award for Outstanding School Leadership this year at the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C.
    Jennifer Nauman, principal of Cape Henlopen's Shields Elementary, was one of seven principals in the nation presented with the award, and she is also the first Delaware principal to receive this award. The Terrel H. Bell Award recognizes school leaders for the vital role they play in guiding students and schools to excellence, frequently under challenging circumstances.
    “We know effective leadership is essential for students’ continuous learning and growth,” Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy said. “Jennifer has cultivated an environment in which all students can learn, and I am inspired by the hard work and passion that have driven her to seek the continuous improvement of her students, staff and herself.”
